Pets Recordings hit their 59th release, handing the reigns to rising star Adam Port who presents a fresh update on ’80s synthtronica, mixed with a smattering of gradual peak-time, bottom-heavy house structure.
‘This Time’ is the product of a new and fruitful relationship between Adam and vocalist Jennifer Touch, who grabbed Port’s attention with her stand out vocals on the Nightstalker EP on Riotvan. The pair connected and began meeting for off the cuff, un-planned sessions at the Keinemusik studio in Stattbad, with Port bringing his knowledge of the dance-floor, Touch her 80’s’esque new wave sound and influences. “It’s a very good flow with her” says Adam. “We’re speaking the same music language even when we have a different background”.
